Lesson Description:

This week's video lesson is the second of a four-lesson mini-series about the most common chord progressions.

When learning how to play common chord progressions in any key:

  1. you're practicing thousands (if not millions) of songs at once,
  2. you're helping your ear get used to common sounds so you can recognize them when they come up in songs,
  3. and you're internalizing the music theory of how chord progressions work together.
